VERY little knitting....

I am here but having a tough time as my older dog and buddy Shadow is in failing health. She is 13 years old and last week was scheduled for surgery to remove an ulcerated tumor on her side. After pre-op blood work is was determined she is in renal failure, her kidneys are shutting down. So more than likely she would not have survived the surgery. My husband went and brought her back home and our vet said she could last month or so but as of 24 hours ago she has not eaten, she drinks water but that's it. I am afraid this is the beginning of the end. :(

So no knitting for me and barely getting things done for christmas.

Here'a a picture of a few more xmas towels I knitted last week and the dishcloth knit-along, I completed but forgot to take a picture until today, a stocking.

Hi Tina,
I'm so sorry about your beloved dog. I've been through that so many times and it is always so incredibly painful. My heart goes out to you. Try to remember all the years you had her in your family and not so much the "end".
On another note, your toppers always look great! You are making two dishcloths from one, very frugal and reminds me of my grandma who always crocheted tops for hers! Very homey. I'm sure they will be greatly appreciated.
(e-mail me, I've got something for you.)
